Barbie Grilled Ham Steak from Clay -Christmas in July

Barbie would like to remind everyone that ham isn't just for Christmas or Easter... It's fabulous on the grill! A nice big ham steak cooks up quickly and that tasty char makes everything taste better. Since I have a bunch of 1:6 scale grills, I thought we'd make a ham steak out of air dry clay. The best thing about this project, there is no right or wrong... We're just aiming for an abstract oval-ish pink shape with black/brown grill marks. And it looks like Barbie is as big a fan of hot sauce as I am:@) (Hot sauce from Mini Brands, did you know Series 3 is out?)

What I did:
Smooshed the clay together and tried to shape it into an oval, 
but also have it big enough to cover what was printed on the grill grates by Mattel.
Added a mini white pony bead to mimic the bone.
Scored some 'grill' lines across it.
Let that dry.
Added a little white paint to look like fat...
And used markers for the grill marks.

Grilling ham soon?
Here are a couple great ideas from my Happier Than A Pig In Mud Blog:
With a light coating of olive oil, nothing more, and Ham and Peach Kabobs with Bourbon Glaze.

Barbie says eat well, and have a happy day😉
